– Johnny and June Carter Cash's lakefront Tennessee property is for sale, it was reported today.
The Hendersonville, Tenn. property was the home that Carter and Cash shared for nearly all of their 35-year marriage. No price was given for the property.
"In my mind it would be some person (who) is a huge Johnny Cash fan," said the seller in a story in the Wall Street Journal.
Highlighted in the film "Walk The Line," the home was where the star retreated for his 1960 detox, where Kris Kristofferson landed his helicopter in a plea for Cash's attention and where Bob Dylan, Billy Graham, Al Gore and former President Ronald Reagan visited. It's also where Cash hosted "guitar pulls," informal jams in the late '60s and early '70s and where he sat for his final music video ""Hurt.""
The house burned down in 2007. Barry Gibb of Bee Gees fame owned the house as well.
The current owner, who was not named, is "selling due to health issues, would prefer it goes to buyer who would like to preserve legacy of Johnny and June Carter Cash," Cash's publicist said. The owner finished an apartment remodel in what was Cash and Carter's wardrobe room. Originally, it was a three car garage that they converted to a wardrobe room.
